Recreating Acoustics

The cultural heritage of a site is made up of more than its appearance; its soundscape is vital, as well. Acousticians and historians work together to preserve and recreate the auditory landscape of important sites through acoustical measurements and digital reconstructions based on architecture and building materials. Thanks to projects like these, researchers can achieve feats like recreating a concert within the Notre Dame Cathedral as it was before the 2019 fire. To learn more about the technologies behind these feats, check out this Physics Today article. (Image and video credit: Ghost Orchestra; for more, see Physics Today)
